For more than a year we have worked closely with the ferroalloy producer Eramet, to create a high-strength briquette based on four different raw materials and residues.
More efficient production
Eramet wanted to increase the yield of the ore used when producing ferroalloys. By doing this, they can reduce the needs for virgin materials raw and at the same time reduce the need for other disposals and potential need for landfilling.
Full-scale and full-functioning briquettes
The project has been divided into four different phases. In the last test, 600 tons of briquettes were produced and fed all the way from the raw material yard and into the melt, via conveyor belt. They even survived a couple of falls of about ten meters high, without generating a substancial amount of fines. This means our briquettes worked at least as well as a corresponding feed of a lumpy raw material.
